Return from Undergraduate Academic Suspension
Write a Personal Statement (approx. 12 pages) describing time spent at Stanford; aIDress, where appropriate:
-Plans upon entering Stanford;
-Behaviors that were successful and unsuccessful;
-Any factors/events that prevented you from completing minimum requirements; Changes made which will translate to academic/personal success upon your return; Resources at Stanford to be used upon return to ensure your success;
-Detailed immediate and longer-term academic plans upon your return;
-Plans for completing any missing/unreported (i.e., I, *, L, and N) grades
Currently my outline is
Plans upon entering Stanford
-Finishing up my 6 classes successfully
-Maximizing my learning by taking advantage of my resources
Detailed immediate and longer-term academic plans upon your return
Spring return for CS194(Senior Project), ENGR40M(An Intro to Making: What is EE), CS109( Intro to Probability for Computer Scientists)
Summer quarter CS148(Introduction to Computer Graphics and Imaging) (only offered summer and autumn)
CS140(Operating Systems and Systems Programming) and MATH42(Calculus) for winter in my final quarter
More manageable Schedule
Class schedule problem bc classes are staggered throughout the year
??Behaviors that were successful and unsuccessful;
No sleep schedule?
Not enough material review
No strict schedule to adhere to
Still depressed at the time but improving
Changes made which will translate to academic/personal success upon your return
Maintain better life schedule and living an overall healthier lifestyle?
Software Engineer for the past two years full-time
Reinvigorated thirst for knowledge
?Resources at Stanford to be used upon return to ensure your success;?
Office hours (TA, professor)?
Extra: Not sure if this will help much, but work will allow me to do part-time during the summer quarter. Not sure if its good to mention that I can work part-time during that period
CURRENT ESSAY PROGRESS (could throw this out just wanted to get something down. Hard topic to write about for me)
I would like to be readmitted to Stanford University following my academic suspension in Spring Quarter of 2013. During these two years away from school I have explored the software industry in the Bay Area and have grown as a computer scientist and as a person through handwork and discipline. Upon my return to Stanford I plan to fullfill my academic requirements, while also maximizing the breadth of knowledge available to me through my classes.
I am currently employed at Google and have been at the company for over a year as a full-time Software Engineer. In this period I identified various behaviors that needed to be corrected to improve my overall productivity.
Full-time employment has enabled me to adapt to a more strict work and sleep balance which has provided me with increased energy and initiative throughout my day.
Upon my return to Stanford I plan to fulfill my remaining requirements for successful completion of my Computer Science major. If I am successfully able to enroll in the Spring quarter of 2015 I hope to take CS194: Senior Project, CS109: Intro to Probability for Computer Scientists, and ENGR40M: An Intro to Making: What is EE.
